    Abstract In 2011-2012, EU-GRASP has organized a foresight exercise to project the consequences  of  the  project’s  findings  into  the  near  future  building  on  the  analytical  work and the results of a number of case studies and transversal reports. The central research question adopted was: ‘What can be the role of the EU as a security actor in  the framework of security governance in the future?’ The aim is to raise awareness on possible relevant issues in the field of multilateral security governance and to look at the consequences for the EU as a regional actor. This document reports the results of this exercise and formulates a set of recommendations for EU officials. The  exercise  was  divided  into  three  ‘phases’.  The  first  concerned  the  identification  of  key variables likely to affect the future multilateral security governance on the basis of a questionnaire to experts and scholars involved in EU-GRASP. The second phase consisted of a two-day participatory workshop (5-6 October 2011) aimed at identifying future  ‘scenarios’  on the  environment of the EU. The scholars and practitioners in this workshop relied partly on the identified key variables or driving forces of the first phase. The time horizon adopted by the EU-GRASP scenario exercise was of approximately 20 years from today in 2030. Finally, the third phase included a second participatory workshop (24 January 2012), this time involving a larger number of EU policy makers, aiming at identifying security and policy implications for the scenario.
